school year at the Young Women's

Mus lim Association Special Education

Center in AI Bunyat, Jordan,

should be an outstanding experience

for the mentally hand icapped students

repor ted Dick Weber, who

works at the center on behalf of the

Ambassado r Foundat ion.

" For instance. some of the handicapped

are not famil iar with modern

electric appliances," Mr. Weber

said J une 3 during a visit here . " So

when they flip the switch on a power

machine like a drill press or shaper,

it will be an experience for them ."

"I used safety guard s and power

feeds and modified some machines

to make them safe. so the student s'

hands will be as far away from danger

as possible," Mr. Weber commented.

When Pastor General Herber t

W. Armstrong approved the Jordan

program last July II. Joseph locke.

was named director. "The purpose

of the vocational program is to help

students acquire a skill at which

they can work." said Mr. Locke.
